Hmmmm, interested to know this also. Wouldn’t mind a male or two at some point but don’t want to be bothered if they’re stinking the place out.

Well I’ve had males from regs before in veg that did have a strong smell if you rubbed their stems but they were culled pretty quickly but I couldn’t imagine they smell less as they mature. I suspect that along with vigour and a few other things that smell is something also used in selecting a desirable male, depending on what you’re looking for.

I`ve flowered males on the bedroom windowsill several times, but then the extraction was in the same room so I couldn`t give a definitive answer on smell, but I didn`t smell anything even sleeping next to it, I think if you grow them now on a windowsill near your grow you will get enough for plenty of seeds, you really don`t need much and your extraction will mask smell.

Im a total newb to breeding so i got a question too lol

 

In @Hamsterxxx case.. hermied plant throws out some dust.. the seeds u get from the females, will they be as good as seeds made with a true male. 

 

Id assume it would create seeds prone to hermie issues? 

 

Just wondered as i have a small bag of some i made lol

Well, if it's hermie because of genetics it's a trait that tends to be passed on. If it was stress you might get away with it.

I love the way my 'phone knows better than me and twice converted hermied into hermie.

I've  done the same mate , kept them in 3lts pots and stuck them in a cardboard box for 12hr darkness, obviously, you don't get to see them grow to their full potential and pick the best male but you do get pollen

Everything was okay I grow under two 600w hps grew to about four feet and then changed the time to 12/12 they started to flower real nice I’m approximately 5 weeks into flower I water at the same time every day and one day last week as I was turning the plants I noticed one male bulb that had grown full and had popped so I had a really good look and I found a couple more. The only other thing is that they were only on the bottom six branches so I have cut them off instead of getting rid of the whole thing as I can’t find any above that six I cut off.

If it was me..

 

I would check the whole tent everyday for new nanas or sacks.. get rid of them before they mature and just keep ontop of it for another month or so.. i dont mind the odd seed in my bud tbh.. still can smoke the weed and its still free lol

 

If not id chop the lot and throw it into a hash pile.. probably be some mild/tripy results as its early.
